Publisher's Summary

Tim Wallace's wife died in a New Jersey boating accident several months ago, and the cops suspect Tim murdered her, though they have no real case against him.

Now it's New Year's Eve, and his two best friends and business partners finally convince him to go out for the first time since Maggie's death. At their neighborhood pub just a few minutes before midnight, things in Tim Wallace's life go from bad to worse. "Can you keep a secret? A really big one?" a drunken stranger asks him. Before Tim can say anything or turn away, the man says, "You know Kinnelon, New Jersey? I murdered someone there. A girl...three months ago. I feel much better now. Now it's your problem." And he walks away.

When the man turns out to have been telling the truth, Tim's life is put under the microscope by the cops, and this time they're not giving up. But neither is Tim. Eventually he realizes the only person who can figure out what's really going on is him - even if it kills him.

    "The weakest of David Rosenfelt's works"

    I was very disappointed with Rosenfelt's latest book, a stand-alone from his Andy Carpenter series. The characters seemed to exist only on paper - I never shook the feeling that they were simply figures created by the author to mouth words written by the author. It also seemed odd to me that Rosenfelt would follow his most recent Andy Carpenter novel ("Play Dead")with another story involving an exploded boat and a missing-and-presumed-dead love interest of the lead character. I felt as if Rosenfelt wrote this book so he could follow an alternative storyline he'd had to leave behind in "Play Dead."

    "Don't read this one, but..."

    I too, was terribly disappointed and I wish the other reviews had been up when I bought this. I got about half way though this and simply couldn't get involved enough to even finish it, which is really rare for me. I have read all the Andy Carpenter books and based on those I rate Rosenfelt as one of my top 10, fun, interesting authors. I adore his other books, but this felt like a weak attempt to emulate Harlan Coben (excellent books, though they can be somewhat dark & disturbing). I really hate to say it, but skip this one.

    "A very slow start"

    Rosenfelt's previous work had set my expectations high, and it was an exercise in perseverance to continue listening. The author was stingy with clues, so there was little opportunity for speculating solutions on the reader's part. When the denoument finally came it was a fair resolution, and interesting for the last part of the book. Not a bad listen overall, but lacking the entertainment value of the author's previous titles.

    "Please stab me,"

    This book was so boring I could not get past the first two hours. I listen to a wide varity of topics and this was in my favorite group, mystery and suspense. I could not finish it. I had no sympathy for the main character and did not care about getting to the end.
    Not recommended.

    "Slow start, but good finish"

    Yes, it starts a little slow, and yes, if you've read the Andy Carpenter series it's a whole different ball game, BUT finish it and you'll enjoy it.

    I started it once and left it about 50 minutes; however, having just finished the Carpenter series, I expected more of the same.

    Then I picked it up a few months later...

    Ultimately, it has a good, original story line, and a bad guy you can't pick out until the end.

    Recommended..

    "Dont fortell a soul."

    Not as good as the Andy Carpenter series. The climax of the story was a let down. Predictable. Once you figure out the plodding premise...you realize its a bit retarded. There are no likable charchters; they vary from super whiney(the protagonist) to stupid. Even the scary monster guy is pitiful. This was one sorry attempt. Maybe it can become one of the Sue Grafton books - "P is 4 Plodding and Predicable"...Did I already mention Pitiful? Three stars for developing the Andy Carpenter Series and zero stars for this PileO'Poop.

    "Can't Compare to Andy Carpenter series."

    If I had never read the Andy Carpenter series I would have liked this book alot more. It was a fine story, interesting enough but I was hoping for the style and wit of the Carpenter series.

    "He keeps you wondering"

    Good story, well written, as David's are. As the story progresses you keep wondering how this will all tie together. I enjoyed this from begining to end.

    "Sub par"

    Ditto other reviews, it just wasn't as engaging or entertaining as most of Rosenfelt's books, of which I am a HUGE fan.

    "Another Super Rosenfelt Book"

    Never read a book by David Rosenfelt that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. Andy Carpenter is my favorite, but any Rosenfelt book is a sure winner!!
